to this shortly -- john mccain and rand paul were tough on her. they were not backing down. >> that's right. republicans were focused on, one, the administration specifically the united nations ambassador susan rice initially in the sunday show appearances, on all five sunday shows that sunday but also an initial discussion about what happened in benghazi, the word was that this was not a terrorist attack, this was a spontaneous protest because of the anti-islam video which of course turns out not to have been the case and a lot senators were focused on why were these talking points false. johnson said dr. rice was purposefully misleading the american public. dr. rice said she was not, she was using the talking points used by the intelligence committee and no effort to mislead. she was providing as much information as she knew at the time. the other information by senator rand paul talking about the lack of accountability, how come nobody was fired. he said if he had been presented at time, and this is somebody who harbors ambitions, he would have relieved secretary clinton of her jobs, spe
for the most part, senator mccain, who has really been one of the most vociferous critics of the straight's approach to benghazi not only before and in the aftermath really was tough on secretary clinton in terms of the answers that she provided to the committee. let's take a listen to an exchange between the senator and secretary clinton. >> i categorically reject your answer to senator johnson. why is it that the administration still refuses to provide the full text of the e-mails regarding the deletion of references to al qaeda in the talking snoints why do we care? the classified information had been included. it gives an entirely different version of events to the american people. going to the american people and tell them what happened, then you ought to have your facts straight. >> well, senator, i understand your very, very strong feelings. you knew chris. you were a friend of chris. you were one of the staunchest supporters of the efforts to dislodge gadhafi and try to give the libyan people a chance, and we just have a disagreement. we have a disagreement about what did happen a
this. the same kind of reaction we're seeing from john mccain because he also is close with chris stevens but he's handling it in a very different kind of way because he's -- he wants -- he's the question asker and hillary clinton is the person who just, you know, again, bears that responsibility. it is clearly weighing very heavily on her. >> secretary of state hillary clinton has taken her seat before the house foreign affairs committee. but we do now have bob bear, the former middle east field officer with us. i wanted to ask you, when do you make of the fact that it has been almost four months, actually over four months and we still don't have anybody in custody responsible for the attack in benghazi. is this a failure of intelligence gathering, a failure of the government in libya to cooperate? what are you hearing? >> well, i think it falls on the shoulders of the libyans to find these people. libya is a chaotic country right now. the attack on algeria, libya played some part -- not at the state, but groups in libya. it is hard to find people when there is no central authori
and liberal inaugural address and some of your fellow republicans said this. i'm going to start with john mccain. he said he would have liked to hear more outreach while ohio republican rob portman tweeted this. my disappointment was in the speech i think the president missed an opportunity to talk about where we can find common ground. steve king tweeted this, awesome and shockingly liberal address. an epic realignment. so some people said not at all, other people said what i just read. what's your take? >> well, you know, the president won the election so he's certainly entitled to pursue his agenda. i thought it would have been more effective though if he had spoken more in thematic terms. by being as precise as he was is laying out a liberal agenda which is what's usually done in a state of the union. in going back to ronald regan's address, government is not the problem. those are general statements. i thought the way he got specific yesterday made it more of a, again, almost campaign type of address. he's an excellent speaker. even how he was distinguishing the issues, implying that democr
to citizenship. but it's a great start. i'm looking forward to a partner, senator mccain, lin graham and now marco rubio joining the very important debate and the conversation about how we fix this broken immigration system. >> you're going to have an alliance with lindsey graham, senator mccain and senator rubio, you might get some comprehensive immigration reform. >> i hope so. >>> tasteless or tribute? up next, we have some information on the growing controversy behind the very unlikely pairing of fashion models with the superstorm sandy first responders.

strongly irge it be tried and i go back to my armed services committee experience with senator mccain over those years. we had subcommittees and we took it very seriously. we held hearings, brought people in, we had a three-day markup that was sacrisanct but we also had the qdr and the state department submitted that and when i got to the state department i said there is nothing like that. i started the development review, the first ever qddr. you can continue that for me and help the state ask the tough questions the way the qdr is legislated for the defense department. secondly, you can help by making sure that the needs we come to you with, like what are the training needs, the budgetary needs, the bureaucrat particuic that are needed that you help support that. we talked a little bit about the budget but getting that transfer authority if you can help us with the house, it's 1.4 billion marine security guard detachment, 553 million. we've been closely coordinated with d.o. dd. historically, marine security guards don't do security. they only do protection of classified materials. so we
